Birthing is one important event that triggers anxiety in the new, to-be parents. Though most births are free from complications, at times maternity ward patients are put under unexpected situations where the baby might be injured or born with a birth defect. These birth defects can be temporary or permanent and would require immense care and treatment of the new born baby after birthing.
Birth defects are preventable if the mother and the baby are given adequate care during pregnancy and birthing. Birth defects cause emotional suffering and financial stress on the new parents. There can be conditions where the birth defects are undetected, probably because of a misdiagnosis or the medical negligence of a midwife, gynaecologists or other health care professionals. Where the standard of care falls below that of a competent expert, you can claim for birth defects compensation.
The following list includes some of the unfortuante circumstances where birth defects may occur:
Negligence during prenatal screening and scans may cause missing of defects in heart, brain and limbs leaving the baby develop physical and mental abnormalities during their growth.
Misdiagnosis and Mistreatment of pregnancy related complications like preeclampsia and gestational Diabetes causing a birth defect.
Misinterpretation of blood tests and missed abnormality during pregnancy causing a wrongful birth.
Mismanaged birthing by incompetent health care professional causing oxygen deprivation in baby increasing the chances of cerebral palsy or brain injury in baby.
Failure to understand the risks of infeasible Vaginal Birthing that may cause shoulder deformities -Erbs palsy- and neck or nerve injury leading to permanent paralysis of the baby.
